Prep Time: More than 15 Minutes
Total Time: More than 1 hour

2 lbs ground beef
2/3 cup chopped yellow onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
2 cloves garlic {minced}
2 lbs potatoes, peeled
4 tbsp butter
2 carrots {sliced}
2 oz {about 2-1/2 tbsp} beef base
1 cup water
2 tbsp flour
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
Sauté beef, onion, celery and garlic in a large pan until well done. Strain off fat. Boil potatoes until fork-tender, about 20 minutes. Drain & mash with butter. Blanch carrots and add to beef mixture. Make a gravy with beef base & water. Whisk in enough flour to thicken, about 2 tablespoons. When gravy comes to a boil, add beef and carrot mixture, reduce heat & simmer for 5 minutes. Spoon meat mixture into a 2 quart casserole. Spoon potatoes on top. Bake for 20 minutes at 350°F. Top with cheese and let sit until cheese melts, about 5 minutes.
